Artful Times Ch 48 TH Style

Yawnnnnnnnnnnnn Stretchhhhhhhh 
deep breathes 
yes I am out of hibernation :) 
I simply can't believe that I haven't blogged since just before Christmas 
Bad Bad Girl :(

In my defense I have been busy making bears I will photo them soon and share with you soon.

I must say it was so lovely to take part in the Artful Times challenge 
the lovely ladies are asking for Tim Holtz style Tags, Cards or ATC
so I  got really messy with a tag and it felt good. :)

The tag has been painted black 
stamped and clear embossed swirls
painted over with storm cloud and rubbed back to reveal the swirls (love this TH technique)
I stamped with a TH diamond stamp
made a grunge flower and die cut a TH swirl
also die cut the bird and cage (although not TH dies)
added a few embellies.

A great shabby TH look I think.

I guess I should wish you all a very Happy New Year (embarrassed look) as its nearly spring 
and I do hope you have not been unduly affected by flood and gale.

See you soon

and thank you stopping by and commenting its always appreciated 

Hugs Sandra XXX
